I would say this is not possible with gtk+

To build a gtk+3 app, you need gtk+3 based libs only, same for gtk+2.
Mixing will not work because of symbols conflict iirc.

Anyway, I think that we got off track on the basics of the problem. The
problem is that you cannot have two ebuilds of the same ${CAT}/${PN}
with the same version simply because the files would have the same name.
Adding a new property or whatever does not solve this problem unless we
propose a way of naming such ebuilds to start with, right ?
